Bogichevich, Avtodor coach: “Fridzon is one of the best basketball players I have worked with. He helped me a lot.”

Head coach of Saratov “Avtodora » Milenko Bogicevic called 38-year-old basketball player Vitaly Fridzon one of the best players he has ever worked with.

Fridzon spent the second half of the VTB United League season as part of the Saratov team.

— No matter how many leagues and players have passed through me, he is definitely one of the best. And I am very happy that he is part of my team.

Vitaly helped me a lot. I remember the first time he walked into the lobby. Americans don’t really follow the Euroleague and sometimes don’t know certain players. But when he came in, everyone said, “Fridz, we know you, you don’t have to introduce yourself.” »

He gave me a lot – firstly as a person with his advice. We had many one-on-one conversations about what we should improve, what was good, and what wasn’t good. He’s like a computer. He has a head start, plays well for his age.

He spent many years in the national team, was one of its main players and has experience in the Euroleague. So he helped me a lot. In the locker room, of course, he had a certain authority. Overall we had a good time,” Bogicevic said according to Championship.

This season, the Saratov club took third place in group B of the regular United League championship. In the play-in match, Avtodor lost to the Moscow club MBA (79:85) and did not qualify for the playoffs of the tournament. Bogicevic took charge of the team last summer and extended his contract at the end of April until 2026 as part of the “1+1” scheme.
